English Teacher Training Courses


Here at LSI/IH Portsmouth we offer a range of different teacher and university lecturer training courses (OID number:E10037748)

Our teacher training courses consist of ‘Methodology and Language for Secondary School Teachers’ and ‘CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) for Secondary School Teachers’. These courses are suitable for non-native secondary school teachers of learners aged 11+ teaching either English as a foreign language or teaching their curriculum subject (e.g history) in English (CLIL).

We also offer a ‘Methodology and Language for University Lecturers and Admin staff’ course which is suitable for non-native university staff who are delivering courses in English to students aged 18+ and for staff who have a need to expand their knowledge, accuracy, and fluency in English.

We ask participants to complete a needs analysis form before arrival so we can focus on particular needs and skills.
